Here is my second post with a sympathy card. I'm sure most of you will agree that these are probably the most difficult cards any of us will ever have to make.

This is a close up to show that by printing onto Safmat it looks as if it has been printed directly onto the cardstock
My friend was a jazz lover and a great musician. He played many instruments, even the organ in church at times. Because of this I wanted to fit music into the card somewhere but not be blatantly obvious about it.
After die cutting the largest Floral Ovals die, whilst still in the die I stamped it with a music background stamp by Penny Black. I used Versamark watermark ink and heat embossed it with clear pearl powder. As you can see I used two different crosses from the Spellbinders Cross 2 set. I used M-Bossablities Dainty Dots folder on the background. I computer generated the sentiment by Thomas Moore and die cut it with Labels 18. For the inside I used a digi sentiment from the Endless Beginnings set by Clear Dollar Stamps.The dove is also from the same digi set. I used the pre-coloured png version and printed it onto Letraset Safmat and attached it to the inside.
This digi set was amazing value for money. It cost $2.50 and for that you get a total of 26 digi images -18 of them sentiments and the other 6 doves. Half the set are jpg and the other half png. I don't know of any where else where you can get such value for money!
Well that's it for today. Have a good weekend everybody.
